1 TBS flour
1 cup milk

6 (or more) strips of bacon. I make 8 and eat 2 leaving me w/ six...but really needed more.
Preheat 350 degrees
Handfull of Shredded cheese (I used 4 cheese)
melt butter over medium high heat until it bubbles a bit
add flour and stir until blondish-brown
slowly pour in milk and let it get hot, not yet boiling
add cheeses, garlic powder, cayenne, salt and pepper and stir constantly until melted.

I have a mandolin slicer I got in Nov. that I haven't tried yet- this will give me a good excuse :)
I also have everything layed out on my counter to make the roasted garlic- I just need the time! Maybe this weekend :) Good to see you are back, have a great weekend! :)

When I made the cauliflower soup I combined a couple recipes I found. I left a detailed comment on that post for you. I don't think I will use that recipe again though.It was good just not quite what I'd hoped for. It sounds like pioneer woman has a really good recipe for it, But it's not blended. So i'm gonna try hers & blend it up!
